I have been wanting to design a crochet plant hanger for a while now. I have so many plants (maybe too many, if that’s possible?) and I don’t have much room on my shelves or floors for anymore! A plant hanger is a great way to get plants out of the way, they take up much less space, and they also get them closer to the window for better lighting!

The trickiest part with this design was trying to figure out a way for it to be able to hold multiple different sized pots. Lots of macrame and crochet plant hangers are like a basket which can only fit a particular sized plant pot. I wanted mine to be as versatile as possible so I created a small base with long straps coming off of it so that the plant pot or tray could sit inside and the straps could wrap around it.

This idea worded great! See the photos below to compare the plant hanger with different sized plant pots. I used a 4″ pot (white), the 4″ pot with a tray, and an 8″ pot to test it out and each size fits perfectly well! You could even use smaller and larger posts too!


I used T-shirt yarn for this easy plant hanger and I highly recommend it! T-shirt yarn is strong, durable, and has a bit of stretch so it so it worked perfectly for this project! I also love the defined stitch definition it creates and since it’s a super bulky (6) weight yarn, it works up super fast!

This T-shirt yarn is from Knitz N Purlz and it comes in a variety of beautiful colors. I used the color Burnt Orange and I love how it compliments the green plants! But whether you’re looking for bright, neutral, or muted colors, Knitz N Purlz has a ton of different options!

Easy Plant Hanger Pattern


Magic Circle, CH 1

Round 1: HDC x10 inside magic circle. Join & CH 1. (10) Round 2: 2 HDC in each ST around. Join & CH 1. (20)

Straps (make 5)

Row 1: HDC SL ST in same ST you’re joined to. HDC SL ST in the next 3 STs. CH 1 & turn. (4)

Rows 2-10: HDC SL ST in each ST. CH 1 & turn. (4) 

Row 11: SC2TOG x 2. CH 1 & turn. (2)

Row 12: SC2TOG. CH 1 & turn. (1)

Row 13: CH 30. Starting in the 2nd CH from the hook, SL ST in the back bump of each CH across. SL ST to the top of the SC2TOG from Row 12. Tie off yarn and weave in end.

Attach Yarn in the next ST of Round 2 of the base. Repeat instructions for next strap until you have a total of 5 straps then move onto Hook Loop.

Hook Loop

CH 6. SL ST to the 1st CH to create a loop.

Round 1: SC x 10 inside the loop. Join & tie off yarn leave a tail end that is approximately 1.5-2 yards/meters.

Align the ends of each strap so they are facing the correct direction, with the right side facing out, and how you will want them to hang. With the tail end left from the hook loop, sew the yarn through the ends of all the straps. I sewed across the ends, like an “t” pattern then back through like an “x” to ensure all the ends were worked through and secure. Tighten the tail end and secure with a few double knots.

With the remaining tail end, wrap the yarn around the top of the ends and the bottom of the hook loop to clean up the join. Wrap around as many times as you’d like then secure the tail end with a few knots, hide the end, and cut off any excess yarn.

And you’re all done!
